North Korea Claims CIA Tried To Kill Kim
On Friday, North Korea made the accusation that the United States and South Korea were in cahoots to assassinate Kim Jong-Un. Specifically, they said America tried an unsuccessful assassination attempt of their leader.
North Korea’s state media released an unfounded claim that, but also said they will “ferret out and mercilessly destroy [the] terrorists” in the CIA and South Korean agencies who are targeting their leader.
The totalitarian government is known for wild claims, but these insisted that spy agencies “ideologically corrupted and bribed” a citizen to carry about the assassination on Kim.
The Associated Press reports:
“The ministry threatened that a counterattack would begin immediately. “Korean-style anti-terrorist attack will be commenced from this moment to sweep away the intelligence and plot-breeding organizations of the U.S. imperialists and the puppet clique,” it said, referring to South Korea.”
“Officials at South Korea’s National Intelligence Service were not immediately reachable for comment.”
Nuclear Tests Still On North Korea’s Agenda
Fox News reports:
“The date of the alleged assassination attempt is unclear; however, Kim Jong Un presided over a military parade on April 15. ‘Criminals going hell-bent to realize such a pipe dream cannot survive on this land even a moment,’ KCNA said. North Korea’s Ministry of State Security called the supposed plot a ‘last-ditch effort’ that had gone beyond the limits.”
“North Korea vowed to ‘mercilessly destroy’ the terrorists behind the plan – which is oddly reminiscent of the 2014 comedy ‘The Interview,’ in which a reporter tries to covertly poison Kim Jong Un with a biochemical substance.”
“The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday voted to impose new sanctions on North Korea, the latest attempt by U.S. officials to deter North Korea from carrying out a sixth nuclear test.”
